Princess Cruises has entered the race to the bottom with so many changes, to what once was the popular "Love Boat" experience. The focus during the entire cruise was to generate onboard revenue with additional charges and ... Read more

This was a cruise to take the family on a first time Alaskan trip. My wife and I are long time Princess cruisers and both of us were disappointed in the overall cruise. The dinning room needs to speed up the process. We dinned with ... Read more

I didn't really choose this cruise, but this was an Alaskan cruise offered from a tour website. Some parts that I didn't like about the cruise - too cold to swim or watch a movie - maybe I was sensitive but could feel some shaking ... Read more
